Idiotic Filibuster Argument O' the Day

I saw this on Wizbang:

Restricting the ability of Democrats to block final votes on several of Bush's most controversial nominees "would be particularly offensive to people of color," members of the Congressional Black Caucus wrote Majority Leader Bill Frist during the day. "All of the major legislation that today bars racial discrimination in voting, employment and housing was passed after filibusters" were broken, it said.

Let me get this straight, they comment that progress on civil rights began only after filibusters were broken, and then use that as an argument to support filibusters. Ackk, my brain hurts just thinking about it. How did these people get out of high school, much less get elected to Congress?
